The police didn´t kill Mark Duggan -
50 years of liberal ´compassion´ did

Daily Mail [UK], by Peter Hitchens

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 1/12/2014 2:15:35 AM

We asked for it. We repeatedly voted for politicians who promised compassion. And now we have compassion coming out of our ears. And we moan that we don’t like the result. Yet we carry on with the same plan, madly expecting it to have a different outcome. It was ‘compassion’ that abolished the death penalty for murder, so forcing us to arm the police--who had until then been guarded from violent criminals by the real threat of the gallows. Look how compassionate that turned out to be. The lone armed constable in the dark and dangerous street now has to

Baroness Sharples of Chawton is immaculate in leather-trimmed tweed. Back ramrod-straight, white hair bouffed to within an inch of its life, nails coral pink, diamonds bobbing cheerily. She is 91 years old, drinks one glass of pink champagne every night (‘It’s a very nice drink but I must get back to whisky’), plays golf extremely proficiently, drove an articulated lorry in World War II and cannot abide rudeness, particularly to members of staff. Over afternoon tea and crumpets in the House of Lords tea room, she is wonderfully chatty.

UKIP ´could hit 30%´ if it can get its

UKIP could attract 30 per cent of the vote if it can get its act together, a major new study of the party claims today. The academic study, which analysed the views of more than 100,000 voters, says support for Ukip is driven not just by Euroscepticism, but also by ‘hostility’ to immigration and ‘intense dissatisfaction’ with the three main parties. It suggests that almost one-third of voters share at least two of these values and might be persuaded to vote for the party in future if it can succeed in getting its message across. The study also finds that

Churchill had a great fondness for animals, a trait that surprises those who think of him only as the wartime leader promising blood, toil, tears and sweat. But he knew where the balance of power lay in the animal kingdom. “I am very fond of pigs,” he declared. “Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. Pigs treat us as equals.” At Chartwell, his home in Kent, he kept ducks and black swans, goldfish and golden orfe, butterflies and bantams; his brown poodles, Rufus I and Rufus II, are buried there, and his budgerigar Toby was a cherished

Mystery fake-passport holders

The two men said by Interpol to have been travelling on stolen passports on the Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 that mysteriously disappeared on Saturday have been identified as Iranian nationals. A BBC Persia report quotes an Iranian friend of one of the men, who said he hosted the pair in Kuala Lumpur after they arrived from Tehran in the days preceding their flight to Beijing. The friend, who knew one of the men from his school days in Iran, said the men had bought the fake passports because they wanted to migrate to Europe. The pair were travelling on passports

Israel´s prime minister
Benjamin Netanyahu tells West:
´Drop your illusions about Iran´

Benjamin Netanyahu accused the West of failing to condemn Iran´s involvement in an intercepted weapons shipment on Monday because it wanted to delude itself that the country´s leaders had changed course. Standing beside an array of rockets, mortars and bullets seized from a ship that sailed from Iran, the Israeli prime minister said the international community was guilty of "hypocrisy" for failing to speak out while loudly denouncing Israel for continued settlement building. "At most I heard a few faint condemnations of Iran from the international community," he said. "In contrast if we build a balcony in Jerusalem we hear

A promise made to an ageing Sir Winston Churchill has been honoured after a kitten was given a home at his country estate. For his 88th birthday in 1962, Churchill was given a marmalade cat named Jock after one of his private secretaries, Sir John "Jock" Colville, who gave him the pet. The cat was so dear to the former Prime Minister that it was rumoured that meals would not start until Jock was at the table. He and his family requested that, after his death, there should always be a marmalade cat named Jock with a white bib and four white socks resident at Chartwell in Kent. The National Trust, which was left the property

It is regarded as one of the world´s safest and most popular jets, which comes complete with a range of technologies designed to keep it in touch with air traffic controllers on the ground. Fitted with an ASD-B flight transponder which, unlike the GPS in a car, broadcasts its location by sending information back to air traffic controllers every second, the Boeing 777 would appear to have the necessary technology to prevent it disappearing completely without a trace. Yet early Saturday morning, this is precisely what happened to Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, as it made its way, 35,000 ft in the air,

PASIR PUTEH: Tests on a sample of the oil slick found off the Kelantan coast reveal that it was not from the missing Malaysia Airlines MH370 flight. Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency (MMEA) eastern region enforcement chief Datuk Nasir Adam revealed test results showed that it was bunkering activities. "This is information I received from Kuala Lumpur. The oil slick is from bunkering activities and not from an aircraft," said Nasir at the MMEA´s base in Tok Bali here on Monday. Officials at the MH370 operation coordinating centre in Sepang said this was confirmed by the Chemistry Department. On Sunday, MMEA´s

KUALA LUMPUR: One of the two suspects who used stolen passports to board the missing MH370 flight has been identified. Inspector General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar said the man has been identified based on CCTV footage gathered from KLIA. "I can confirm that he is not a Malaysian, but cannot divulge which country he is from yet," said Inspector General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar at the Kajang police headquarters yesterday. When asked if both of the men had immigration records of entering the country, Khalid said that they were in the midst of investigating

KUALA LUMPUR--Malaysian officials are poring over CCTV footage and questioning immigration officers and guards at Kuala Lumpur´s international airport, concerned that a security breach may be connected to the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370. Suspicions that the Beijing-bound Boeing jet, which vanished on Saturday with 239 people on board, may have been hijacked or bombed have risen after at least two passengers were found to be using stolen passports, though Malaysia´s government stressed it was considering all possibilities. Malaysian investigators, assisted by the FBI, are probing the identities of four passengers in particular, two Malaysian officials with knowledge of

After vacationing at the $2,500 a night Ocean Reef Club in Key Largo this weekend, no wonder Barack and Michelle Obama look pleased with themselves as they returned to Washington on Sunday afternoon. Appearing relaxed after his third vacation of the year, the president has been heavily criticized for his taxpayer-funded trip as the crisis in Ukraine rumbles on. Squeezing in another round of golf on Sunday, the president´s holiday coincided with his Vice President Joe Biden jetting off to the Virgin Islands for the weekend as the White House prepares to welcome Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk for critical

The White House appeared to double down on its policy of engagement with Iran following Wednesday´s dramatic pre-dawn high seas capture of an Iranian missile cache destined for Hamas by Israeli naval commandos. [Snip] White House spokesman Jay Carney said the Israeli weapons interdiction was actually the result of high level intelligence sharing between the US and Israel. State Department spokesman Jen Psaki went even further, claiming it was the US Navy, which she said first identified the frigate, which was planning to interdict the ship itself, but that Israel, "ultimately chose to take the lead."

Is Mitt Romney getting the band back together? The 2012 Republican presidential nominee has invited his debate prep advisers and senior campaign aides to his mountaintop chalet in Park City, Utah, for a weekend of skiing later this month, according to two people close to Romney. The reunion of Romney´s political brain trust comes amid a burst of positive buzz about the former Massachusetts governor -- from favorable reviews of "MITT," the Netflix documentary about his campaigns, to chatter among some powerful GOP donors about another Romney presidential campaign in 2016.

The 300,000-member union that was the first to endorse then-Senator Barack Obama has released a devastating Obamacare report that says Obama´s controversial healthcare program will slash worker wages by up to $5 an hour, reduce worker hours, and exacerbate income inequality. The report by Unite Here--a North American labor union that represents workers in the hotel, gaming, food service, manufacturing, textile, distribution, laundry, and airport industries--is titled: "The Irony of ObamaCare: Making Inequality Worse." "Ironically, the Administration´s own signature healthcare victory poses one of the most immediate challenges to redressing inequality," states the 12-page report. "We take seriously the promise

NATIONAL HARBOR, Md.—Rand Paul handily won the presidential straw poll at the Conservative Political Action Conference Saturday, one gauge of the Republican base’s mood less than two years before the 2016 primary season kicks off. The Kentucky senator received 31 percent, far ahead of second place Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who received 11 percent. Neurosurgeon Ben Carson finished third with 9 percent, ahead of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who received 8 percent. The announcement came at the end of the group’s annual three-day confab. Organizers said that 2,459 attendees voted on computer kiosks.

During House Minority Nancy Pelosi´s address at the 2014 California Democrats State Convention on Saturday in Los Angeles, she told a story about an unnamed House Republican telling her the GOP does not care about hungry children in America. Pelosi claimed the unnamed "friend" called the poor and hungry "invisible". Pelosi used that same exact same rhetoric in early February at her weekly press briefing only then instead of friend it was the rock band U2 that gave her the "invisible" line...

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) wowed the beltway elite and even Democrats during Saturday´s annual Gridiron event, showing why the Ivy Leaguer has confounded and been vilified by many with whom he shares the same intellectual pedigree. The annual D.C. roast is hosted by the exclusive Gridiron Club, which is composed of D.C.´s mainstream and "elite" journalists. Cruz has degrees from Princeton and Harvard, which those in the permanent political class covet, and he can do their social rituals better than they can. Yet Cruz refuses to be co-opted by them politically, instead choosing to be a staunch conservative who represents

Here was the Morning Joe panel bemoaning Ted Cruz´s supposed incivility at CPAC in allegedly insulting war hero Bob Dole, when up pops Mike Barnicle to ask "what does it say about CPAC, where the most popular speaker they had, the one who received the most rousing reception is a moron, Sarah Palin?" A bit later, Mika Brzezinski piled on, calling Palin a "multi-million dollar moron." When Joe Scarborough challenged her, saying "you don´t think that, right?", Mika didn´t retract her slur, saying only that Palin is "savvy in selling a message that makes a lot of money." View the

Virgin CEO Richard Branson said that those who are skeptical of man-made global warming should “get out of our way,” joining the ranks of CEOs lashing out against those opposed to business investments in “sustainability.” Branson made his remarks in the wake of Apple CEO Tim Cook’s telling global warming skeptics to “get out of this stock” if they did not agree with the company’s green investment strategy. Cook made his comments after being confronted by a free-market activist who pressed him on putting the environment ahead of profitable investments. “If you want me to do things only for [return on investment] reasons,

CBS News investigative correspondent Sharyl Attkisson has reached an agreement to resign from CBS News ahead of contract, bringing an end to months of hard-fought negotiations, sources familiar with her departure told POLITICO on Monday. Attkisson, who has been with CBS News for two decades, had grown frustrated with what she saw as the network´s liberal bias, an outsized influence by the network´s corporate partners and a lack of dedication to investigative reporting, several sources said. She increasingly felt like her work was no longer supported and that it was a struggle to get her reporting on air.

“I told you so.” Those have to be four of the most satisfying words in the English language. And Mitt Romney has earned the right to speak that short sentence, over and over again, whenever he chooses. Not that he would — it would be “unbecoming,” to use one of Romney’s old-fashioned words that in 2002 had the mandarins of Political Correctness harrumphing about his “sexism,” I believe the charge was that time. But these days, Mitt looks more and more prescient, and his critics ever more deluded. First of all, Russia has become “our number one geopolitical foe,” as he put it

The father of Sandy Hook Elementary School shooter Adam Lanza has spoken publicly for the first time to make the startling claim that he wishes his son had never been born. Giving a series of interviews to The New Yorker magazine, Peter Lanza dubbed his son Adam ´evil´ for killing 20 children and six staff at the Connecticut school just before Christmas in 2012. Explaining that his son spent his entire life troubled by mental illness, Lanza, a vice president for GE Energy Financial Services said that in his opinion he thought his youngest boy was an undiagnosed schizophrenic.
